Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

New Zealand and Sub Antarctic Islands, from 0 to 50 m. The Mahai Peninsula, shallow waters of South Island and its offshore island; endemic (Ref. 9). Members of the class Pycnogonida are gonochoric and sexually dimorphic. During copulation, male usually suspends itself beneath the female. Fertilization occurs as the eggs leave the female's ovigers. Males brood the egg masses until they hatch. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into protonymphon larva then to adults (Ref. 833).
